International students

Eine deutsche Studentin und ein internationaler Student gehen gemeinsam durch die Mensa und unterhalten sich.

Our counselling team supports international students with all questions regarding student life in Germany. We offer advice, events and information if you are new to Germany or face various challenges during your studies. With our Study Buddy Programme and our Meet and Eat offer, you have two opportunities to get to know your fellow students and make friends.

We advise you on all questions concerning student life in Germany

  • how to find a room
  • how to get in touch with Germans,
  • which health insurance is best for you,
  • what you need to know about working in Germany,
  • how to finance your studies,
  • If you get into financial difficulties
  • if you are pregnant or in Germany with your children
  • if you have received a letter from an authority that you do not understand.

Even if you don't know whether you are in the right place with your question - feel free to contact us. We'll find out together and pass you on to the right place.
